All About Food Additives

Most foods that we purchase for every day consumption and those that we eat a little less often contain additives of various descriptions. In fact humans have been using food additives for thousands of years, including salt, spices, colourings and flavourings. They are added for a variety of reasons, including to preserve, enhance flavour and boost nutritional value. The food additive industry turns over billions of dollars every year globally. This film looks at food additives, including colours, flavours, emulsifiers, gelling agents and stabilizers, preservatives and antioxidants, and processing aids. It delves into why different types of additives are used and common examples of each type. It features an interview with food scientist, Leif Lundin, who explains a range of information and ideas about the various aspects of food additives covered in this program. Using a range of footage and clear, concise narration, this film is an outstanding resource for senior learners at secondary level, and further education. It is a valuable production for anyone undertaking food and food technology related courses, as well as hospitality.
